* His real name is [[ArthurianLegend Myrddin]] of course, but people have trouble pronouncing (let alone ''spelling'') it, and so they call him Tim instead.

Tim didn't bother trying to blow the Rabbit up with magic because he'd tried that in a previous encounter. However, he'd never heard of chemical explosives. This is also why the Rabbit doesn't chase after them.

the running-away knights, as it would risk exposure to a magic attack.

[[WMG: Tim's description of the Caerbannog carving is filtered through GossipEvolution.]]

He describes it as "carved in mystic runes... the last words of Olfin Bedwere of Rheged," but the knights instead find the last words of Joseph of Arimathea, carved in ordinary (though foreign) Aramaic. Yet he got the central message correct.

The Old Man from Scene 24's line that "no man has entered" the cave could mean [[NoManOfWomanBorn just that]], or that the message got out through divine revelation, or that no one's entered it in so long that it seems like no one ever has, but in any case, though Tim knows where the cave is, he himself can't enter because of the Killer Rabbit and he's never spoken directly to anyone who has. All he has to rely on is a rumor stating that the cave contains knowledge about the Holy Grail, in a script that is (for Dark Age Britain) arcane and could seem "mystic," with its attribution garbled.

[[WMG: The duck is the witch.]]
As noted, the witch has the ability to transform people into animals (even if they get better); she transformed herself into a duck and got the woman accused to throw the townspeople off her trail.

[[WMG: The Castle of Aaaaaargh used to belong to [[WeternAnimation/TrollHunters Aaarrrggghhh!]]]]

Gunmar gave Aaarrrggghhh the castle as a reward for his service during his war against humanity and the good trolls, but he would later give it up as part of his [[TheAtoner atonement]]. The French took it over after it was abandoned.

* The French Knights were there to re-enact a famous battle, but showed up early and taunted the Arthurian Drunkards while waiting. At the end, everyone else taking part in the re-enactment shows up, which is why Arthur suddenly has an enormous army that never appeared at any other point in the film. Their arrival was total coincidence, but in Arthur's delusional state he just assumed they were working for him. The police then show up to arrest them for unwittingly trespassing.

[[WMG: Castle Anthrax is really an overly-dramatic brothel and sanctuary from the restrictions of the era]]

The middle ages wasn't exactly a great time to be sexually promiscuous. It was after all an era in which the Church enforced very strict rules about how people were to behave, which included heteronormative ideas that banned premarital sex. Naturally, it wouldn't be a great time to run a brothel either, for the same reasons.

The women who run Castle Anthrax are all non-conformists to Medieval Society, especially in their sexual promiscuity (female sexuality being something that people at the time liked to think didn't exist). By hiding in a relatively isolated castle, they can escape the restrictive social conventions of Medieval Society and act as they wish. They intentionally called it "Anthrax" to avoid unwanted attention, expecting that clergymen and others who would object to their sexual activities would mistake it for a plague colony and ignore it.

[[WMG: Being thrown off the bridge isn't as bad as you might think.]]
Remember that in the Castle Anthrax scene, "peril" is the movie's code word for sex. If you get thrown off the bridge, you wind up in the Gorge of Eternal Peril, so....
